Description:

A postdoctoral position is available at the Emory University School of Medicine to study the mechanism of enveloped virus entry into cells and its inhibition by host restriction factors. Our group employs molecular and cell biology techniques combined with cutting-edge quantitative imaging methods, including single particle tracking and super-resolution microscopy. New directions include the development of correlative fluorescence-cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM) to gain structural insights into virus entry intermediates. The candidate will work closely with members of a collaborative interdisciplinary team and an enthusiastic mentor. Highly motivated individuals holding a Ph.D. degree in virology, cell biology or related fields are encouraged to apply. Emory University provides an excellent training and collaborative environment for research and training.
